From the Preface: "Mr Campbell has asked me to write a few words as a Preface to this, his most recent book. It is unnecessary to say much. His previous works have shown him to be one who has perhaps explored more of Africa's unfamiliar territories than any other living man. This volume carries on the same wondrous tale. Its graphic pages reveal the intense devotion, the Christian courage, the unflagging and indefatigable perseverance which carry him into regions of the Dark Continent where death in many terrifying forms is almost always near, where the sands are strewn with the bones of previous pioneers, and where it requires no ordinary resolution to be a missionary-colporteur of Christ's Evangel."
